Fasig-Tipton has changed the date for its Texas sale of 2-year- olds in training to April 5. The auction, which will be held at Lone Star Park, originally was scheduled for March 29, the Tuesday following the Easter holiday.
The change was not announced until now because Fasig-Tipton was waiting for Lone Star management's permission to move the sale. According to Tim Boyce, the Fasig-Tipton Texas director of sales, track officials were concerned about how close the new date would be to the opening of Lone Star's spring race meeting on April 14. They needed to wait and see how many stalls were needed for racehorses before giving Fasig-Tipton an answer.
The sale's under tack show will be held on April 3, beginning at 10 a.m. (CST).
